Smart TMS’s Birmingham team are opening their latest clinic with a series of events for local health professionals to introduce and demonstrate the Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation system.

In addition, unlike other clinics, we are also offering treatment for other conditions where there is an adequate evidence base. We will discuss our results in more detail during the evening.
